    "As I write this, I am in tears when I see over 200 children in one classroom with only a black board. That is not right," says Rosemary describing the poor educational situation of children in Kunhongo community during her recent (November 2015) visit in Malawi. "We have shared the chalks and many pens, but it takes much more than that to address the school needs in the community," she says. In fact, Rosemary plans to speak to Emmaville School in England to explore the possibility of creating links that may contribute towards the betterment of education for Kunkhongo children. During the visit, teachers in Kunkhongo community are provided with mobile phones. Clothing including underwear for men, women, children and orphans has been given out; some of the clothing was donated by Emmaville School and parents whose children go to the school. Donation of football boots and a football and netball to the school brought a lot of joy to the children in Kunkhongo school. "We left money for maize for January and February for the schoolchildren and the beekeepers as maize in short supply," tells Rosemary. Preparations to construct Nursery School in the community are now finalized. When completed, this is expected to make a huge difference for out-of-school children in Kunkhongo Community. Give Hope Trust is thankful to all those who contributed financially and in-kind to the progress of projects in Malawi.

    Give Hope Trust's honey project continues to progress in Malawi to help communities make their own income. "We have plenty of customers now," reports Rosemary, the Project Founder and Coordinator, during her visit to the project in November 2015. "I went to the clinic to get my blood checks done and was welcomed as 'The Honey Lady'. One 5 star hotel, within cycling distance from Kunkhongo, has agreed to buy next year's honey," she explains. Beekeepers are provided with goats during the visit. Alex, one of the beneficiaries, said, 'Oh, it is so good. I can have milk in my tea now, every morning'. "I was so touched to hear this. We take for granted our fridges at home and their contents," reflects Rosemary. Eight beekeepers agreed to buy 2 trees such as guava, lemon, and orange and then plant one near their homes and give one away to share. A house house is under construction to serve as storage and processing facility for the honey. The construction is expected to be completed soon.

    An update from Frankie Mumba, head of Luyando Community School in Zambia

    Posted September 17, 2015, 6:05 am

    Dear Sponsor, Thank you so much for your support in making a difference to the lives of children and their families here in Zambia. I thought you may like an update about our school. We now (September 2015) have 7 classes catering for 8 grades. Children start at nursery andy learn through to grade seven. Our nursery has 83 children and the number of children in the other classes are: Grade 1 = 52; Grade 2 = 37; Grade 3 = 55; Grade 4 = 34; Grade 5 = 41; Grade 6 = 35; and Grade 7 = 44. So we have a total number of 381 lovely children in the school. Of these, 165 (44%) are boys and 215 (56%) are girls. On our staff there are 9 men and 5 women, with one lady currently on maternity leave. She will return next term and we have a lady helping out in the Nursery class until then. Our curriculum uses both English and the local language. We have some very good educational materials and currently need more teaching and learning materials in English. The government provides no funding for the school. It comes from Give Hope Trust and I thank you for it. Very warm regards, Franchessca K. Mumba Headteacher
